rising. we have a front that will become more westerly, and start to filter in less humid air, and keep the temperature from rising as high as yesterday. chester town is at 73. it is 70 in colombia. it is down to 59 in pittsburgh. chicago is at 53. minneapolis is that 46 -- 46. the front will move further south. as it does that, it will swing the wings are around. the front will go down to near norfolk. we will not get into the really chilly air. each of those waves that, it will throw some moisture our
way. that is not in today's forecast. today, we will see a lot of sunshine. on unseasonably warm weather will continue. 83 degrees to 87 degrees is the high. lisa, you have a hurricane named after you. it is way out in the atlantic. that is hurricane lisa. it will stay out over the atlantic ocean. what is left of matthew is over central america. it will be causing problems there. it looks like another storm will be headed for the gulf of mexico later into the week and next weekend. right now, we're looking at brain chances of coming in on sunday. the best chance for rain will be on monday and tuesday. there could be some pretty good rain.
our forecast is 85 today, 71 tomorrow. monday and tuesday, we have a rain chance. the chances taper off wednesday. thursday and friday look dry. highs will be in the 70's which flows in the 50's and 60's -- with lows in the 50's and 60's of next week. >> obesity brings on all kinds of problems, but it had not been connected to memory loss. a new study looked at 9000 women and found that those that were overweight or more likely to have memory problems. we are joined by dr. meghan lynch. so, who sponsored the study and tell us more about. >> the study was based on the whi study. it looked at the baseline data.
they look that height, weight, blood pressure, and they gave a test called a mini mental status exam. they found that women who were overweight or obese, they scored a little worse. >> why did they think that is? >> they are interested in finding risk factors for dementia or alzheimer's disease. that is why they did it. they are interested in finding out if heart disease, strokes, dispose you to that kind of problems, we are finding if obesity can do that. >> the simple thing is to say lose weight. that is not so easy. what are some recommendations? >> i try to teach my patience to get active. the study showed that women of

>> been not so fast. you are no match. >> this is a scene from the animated tell "legends of ga'hoole." when it falls from his nest, he lands in the town of the evil pure ones. he manages to escape in search of his heroes. it is one of the new movies in titters this weekend. -- in theaters this morning in -- this weekend. >> the penguin is cute.
>> we love owls. >> we are not want to review that yet. >> i did not see it. it was screened for critics, and i did not see it. >> you chose to pass on the ga'hoole. >> i never -- i did not pass on "wall street: money never sleeps." here is what i consider it. oliver stone did something brilliant. he wanted to make a movie about the current financial crisis, and he used his iconic character of gordon gekko to do it. michael douglas is so great. this character fits him like a glove. he is everything. he is seductive. he is malevolent. he is loyally. you like him, despite yourself. we hope he can get some help
because he is going through a health crisis. he is just fabulous in this part. you have thomas freed -- the character that is going to marry gordon gekko's estranged daughter. he is writing a book called "is greed good?" in a weird way, gordon gekko is almost the hero. one of the jokes is that the stuff that gordon gekko did in the original film is child's play compared to what the goldman saks and stuff did currently. it is a good way of dissecting the financial crisis. the one thing i can say is that it is a little over-stocked. it is complicated.
>> what do you give it? >> 3 stars. i've liked it a lot, but maybe it was overly ambitious. >> molding on to -- moving on to -- >> can i have a rent why do they make these movies that are ostensibly for women that seem to not like women? all of the women are flighty, and erotic, prone to cruelty and violence. all of the men are revolved, reasonable, and good-natured. can we stop trying to make christine bell happened? she does not have enough of a presence. the promise was she was a key key girl in high school. she finds out her brother is
marion the girl who tormented her. sigourney weaver comes in. one star. i did not like it. >> but, you like betty white. >> who does not like betty white? >> the maryland lottery, let yourself play. , -- max, thank
>> now, 11 sports with pete gilbert. >> good morning. each week, we want to hear from
new -- a chance to vote on the game of the week. we were given north carroll against south carroll. this team is very to it. first quarter he cares about. they connected a lot. 40 yards and a touchdown. in the second, returning a punt for the cavaliers, he looks locked, and thought better of it. a great job reading the box. south carroll is in front 20-0. once again, they are in aid zone. south carroll and crews to four- zero. -- improves to 4-0.
back to pass, tipped not once, but twice. johnny on the spot leads the blockers. he gets some good ones. he is not to be caught. he goes 55 yards and a touchdown. later in the third, following the fourth turnover of the game, 14-nothing, bulldog. southern gets a rare road shot. lawrence smith has a fully loaded offense, and keeps it on the ground. jamal johnson with a top 15 yards. a host of different guys is able to carry the ball -- are able to carry the ball. 14-0. terrance williams is so much fun to watch. you can see on the field, it won't be too bad when we get

as well as treatment and prevention has impacted our city and our state. now, bernstein has promised to take personal responsibility for reducing crimes. he bows that -- he vows he will make the city center. >> those are lofty will -- those are lofty goals. despite his promises, he cannot do it alone. a fresh start with a new prosecutor is an opportunity for all entities of the criminal justice system to join forces, share resources, and work together. it will not only to the prosecutor's office, but the police, legislators, with a unified goal of making baltimore a safer city for all. while he will not officially when the office until november 2, he has unofficially won the job, and all of the challenges that come within. tax on everything you buy?
that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense. 23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable. that's too high for the average american out here. i don't know how we would manage it really. don't like that idea. we can't afford andy harris' idea. i'm frank kratovil and i approve this message. just drive, we'll get there! adventure runs on dunkin', with our egg white breakfast sandwiches. hurry in and try one in delicious veggie or turkey sausage.
